What was your source for this knitting project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? I love ear flap hats and pixie hats on kids, but wanted something for an adult. So this is almost a pixie, but not quite, playful, but not over done. What advice would you give someone starting this project? All you need to know is the cable cast on method, and get some pretty yarn, even a thick and thin yarn will do nicely.
